I want you to watch this video.

It’s Lolo Jones at the 2008 Olympics. She is staring at a Gold Medal before hitting a hurdle and losing the race. Do we give her credit for running 80 of the 100m well? Does she get a “Moral Victory” medal? No, a loss is a loss in any sport.

There will be sports media talking heads today who will tell you that you are an idiot or out of your mind if you dare speak badly of Tony Romo  and on the flip side there will be media members who will tell you Romo is the worst QB of all time.

Don’t be manipulated by the Skiptized media. Their only job is to give “extreme takes” or in some cases they are so arrogant they believe they believe their opinions are facts. You are intelligent people, don’t be fooled. Common sense will tell you what happened in the Broncos vs. Cowboys game.

Everything doesn’t have to be black or white, there are some grey areas, but in this case it is as clear as day.

Tony Romo isn’t a bad quarterback, in fact he is a good quarterback. For 58 minutes he put on a masterful performance when his defense wasn’t doing him any favors. It was the type of performance that in the barbershop 10 years from now they would have said….

“You remember that time Romo…………”

They might still say that, but for a different reason now.

People don’t remember how you start, they remember how you finish.

If I got out on a first date with a young lady. I wine and dine her like she has never been wine and dined before. I say and do all the right things to make her heart flutter. I have her fall instantly in love with me and then when it comes down to close the deal, I am a two minute brother, what do you think she is going to remember most?

Yes, she might give me another chance and she might appreciate the night overall, but she will always remember when it was time to put it down I threw a pick 6 in the bedroom.

If you throw 8 innings of perfect ball, up 3-0 and then give up a grand slam in the 9th inning, what do you think people are going to remember?

If you win the first two sets of the final at Wimbledon 6-0, 6-0 and then proceed to lose the next three sets, what do you think people are going to remember?

If you are up two shots at the Masters and triple bogey on 18, what do you think people are going to remember?

If you messed around and got a triple double in Game 7 on the NBA finals, were down 1 point and missed two free throws that could win the championship, what do you think people are going to remember?

If you are the greatest Regular Season Quarterback of all time, but are 9-11 in the playoffs, what do you think people are going to remember?

Fair or unfair, people remember finishers.  It is the reason why Tom Brady is ahead of Peyton Manning in most people’s mind.  It is the reason the Giants could go 0-16, but if you ask people who would they have more confidence in if a playoff game had to won, many would say Eli.  It is why Joe Montana who stats pale in comparison to most modern day quarterbacks is still considered the best of all time.  It is the reason Elway >>> Marino.  This isn’t new.  You want to be a quarterback in the National Football League, you will be judged by wins, losses and rings, not stats.  Ask Philip Rivers or Matt Ryan would they rather have stats of Joe Flacco’s ring?

Tony Romo is the quarterback of the DALLAS COWBOYS. This isn’t the Panthers, Vikings, Jaguars and etc, this is the DALLAS COWBOYS. Just being great for 58 minutes doesn’t cut it. Of course it wasn’t all his fault and if it wasn’t for him the Cowboys would have been blown out, but when you are the quarterback and you have a chance to lead your team to victory with 2 minutes to go in the game and you throw an interception, it doesn’t matter if you threw for 1000 yards and 10 TDs, you deserve to be criticized.

Romo is a stand up guy, who always takes responsibility for what happens on the field, but for the media high horsers who want people to just ignore what happened in those final minutes are just athlete groupies who are worse than Basketball Wives.

No coffee for Romo, because he simply isn’t a closer and no amount of yards can change that.

    …but this is ridiculous, as are most of the analogies. It would be more like wining and dining a chick while your douchebag brother is sitting there actively ruining your date, then opens the door while you are trying to smash playing Nickleback loudly.

    • WHO THE FUCK LISTENS TO NICKLEBACK???? says:

      no straight male listens to Nickelback. Something you need to ‘come out’ and say? Live your truth.

  2. Ladybball says:

    Boooo I’m a peyton Manning fan, so I may seem a little biased. Peyton played better down the stretch and made big plays. That’s what separates Tony Romo and the elite QB’s. When players are consistently able to deliver they are lauded and rightfully so. You can’t fault fans and the media for their “What ifs” about Tony Romo, he hasn’t been consistent, neither have the Cowboys. One big game doesn’t change people’s minds.

    • theMountinman says:

      Well, since Peyton is the second coming, then he must be choker too, as even his little brother (who isn’t even with flying distance of elite status) has TWO super bowls to Peyton’s single.

      The truth is football is a TEAM sport, and Peyton has been fortunate enough to be surrounded by better talent most his career than Tony has. That’s not to say Peyton isn’t the greatest QB ever… he may be. But he’s made costly mistakes at bad times, and he’s had terrible outings (Nov 12, 2007, SIX INTS!!!!). No wins alone and no one loses alone.

      • Ladybball says:

        Is that like the argument just because so and so has this many rings doesn’t make him better than this player, like NBA fans do betweem LeBron and Kobe? Can I say just because Eli has 1 more ring than Peyton is damn sure doesn’t make him better than Peyton? I shook my head and said “NOPE, NOPE, NOPE, NOPE, NOPE” so many times I had to take a break. All kinds of wrong in this post. Peyton is consistent, Tony is not, Peyton is a 4 time MVP Tony is not. Peyton has a championship Tony does not. Tony had T.O. around him and still couldn’t pull it out, he has a great group of guys now and his team is still 2-3. Lets not do “that” argument because it’s often inaccurate. A quarterback needs his players to be good as well as players need their quarterback to be great. Peyton is great so his guys perform the same. Doesn’t matter if he had a crappy team around him he can still “DO THIS”. No QB is flawless no not even Tom, Peyton or Drew that’s a fact. But Tony Romo has yet to prove, to me at least, that he can be like the elite guys and perform like he did on Sunday “consistently” year in and year out.

  3. Real talk says:

    Honestly you rip him at all and your crazy, some people dont understand the concept if team sports

    • ROMO LOST THE GAME AT THE END, GET OVER IT, FAGGOT! says:

      This whole debate about it being the defense’s fault is stupid, because unless DAL got blown out, it’s not a valid argument. Denver allowed 48 points on the field, so Dem Gals had a chance. The game was in Romo’s hands and he blew it. No one with intelligence would say otherwise, uinless they are fucking him. If you’re fucking him, we’d understand, but I doubt you are, so get over it. Take the L, and quit bitchin’.

    “It is the reason why Tom Brady is ahead of Peyton Manning in most people’s mind.” Joke of the highest degree. No one thinks that. For sure not “most”. This was literally one of the toughest reads in a while on this sight. This rant was painful.
